Medical gloves are not only available in a variety of different styles, but also in a number of different materials, qualities and sizes which are precisely designed to protect the user in a number of environments and working conditions. . You will often find leather, cotton, vinyl, neoprene, latex, nitrile and Kevlar or a mixture of these used in different areas of the glove to protect the wearer depending on the user's needs, labor and protection required. Properly fitted protective equipment is essential for the safety of all employees. Measuring your work gloves correctly to get the right fit will increase user safety and productivity. If the glove fits properly, it will provide the worker with maximum protection without compromising dexterity.

Latex Gloves

Latex gloves are made from a milky fluid derived from the rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis. A variety of chemicals are added to this fluid during the processing and manufacture of a latex glove. These gloves are closely associated with the use of medical and dental laboratories.

Vinyl Gloves

Vinyl gloves are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and do not contain latex (synthetic rubber). Since vinyl gloves don't have a tight fit, they fit more loosely than latex and nitrile and will cost less. In addition, the level of protection is much lower than that of latex or nitrile. They are normally used for cleaning, food preparation and other industrial environments. They will puncture more easily than latex or nitrile.

Nitrile Gloves


Nitrile gloves are made from synthetic latex, contain no latex proteins, and are three times more puncture resistant than natural rubber. They offer superior puncture and abrasion resistance and are also used for protection against a variety of chemicals. The nitrile material also has a naturally low coefficient of friction, which makes them easy to put on. Here are some of the reasons why nitrile gloves would be chosen over vinyl or latex: No protein allergen, antistatic behavior, good chemical resistance, high puncture resistance, high flexibility, resistant to solvents.

In conclusion if protection is your number one concern, there are a few things you should know about making latex, nitrile and vinyl gloves. There are three standard measurements that protective gloves are scaled to. Medical grade - (nitrile gloves) For medical use. Highest level of protection. These gloves are rigorously tested to meet FDA requirements and exceed a wide range of demanding specifications. High Risk - (latex gloves) For use in emergency medical service areas. High levels of testing are necessary to ensure appropriate requirements. Utility Category - (vinyl gloves) Not intended for medical use and not tested to FDA specifications. These gloves are perfect if detail is a necessity. Normally used for painting and general hand protection. They are manufactured according to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) specifications.
